Green Chevron Ottoman

My sister has been wanting to change things up for awhile in her family room...we spent many a times on facebook messaging links from http://www.fabric.com/ of fabrics that we liked. She finally decided on doing Navy blue/ bright green...I call is "shelley green", I got tired of saying, "you know the green I like".

Anyhow...Nikki decided to do the green chevron on this LARGE ottoman that my mother-in-law gave to her. Then we found a great print that pulls in the colors together on her pillows.

Last weekend I headed up to Nik's house to watch conference with the family. In between sessions, I made her ottoman and 3 pillows.




Here is the Before.... Large and Dated, but comfy and great scale for her room.


After...Green Chevron that pops off her brown slipcovered sectional.



I matched up the Chevron on the sides... I missed my industrial machines and cutting table during this project.


Look how great the print is on the pillows that pull it all together! And you can see the matching better in this photo.




Close up of pillow print... bit blurry sorry.


Loving it altogether!


Another after....


Side Note #1--- Yesterday was my Birthday, and Heber was at work all day...so my darling boys made me a cake from scratch! Frosting and all. I think it was to make up for being so naughty at church. Either way, I'll take it.


Here's my oldest.



Double stacked round chocolate cake...my favorite. A little crumbly, it didn't come out of the pan so well.





My youngest helped clean the bowl...
They couldn't find candles...so they used matches after they already served up a few pieces....better late than never, right!

Side Note--#2
I got on a team to run Vegas....YEAH!!! I am taking two of my running partners with me to join in the fun. About 11 days till the race!
